Aviat CTR 8300

CTR 8300/8540 –Microwave Router (Indoor Unit)

The Aviat Networks CTR 8000 (includes new CTR 8300) super-compact microwave router can pack up to 1 Gbps of data throughput in a single radio channel. Where space is a premium, but high capacity and advanced networking features are still necessary, the CTR 8300 delivers multiple deployment options because of its passive-cooling packaging for both rack and non-rack installations such as in rooftop enclosures and street-side cabinets.

Full Feature Microwave Routing

The Aviat Networks CTR 8300 is a smaller version of the industry-leading CTR 8540 microwave router, with the same unique integration of microwave and networking features normally found in much larger and more expensive separate aggregation devices: a microwave indoor unit (IDU), an advanced Carrier Ethernet switch, a TDM Pseudowire adapter and an IP/MPLS router. The CTR 8311/8312 models are scaled to handle lower capacities than the CTR 8540 but can interoperate seamlessly with the 8540, enabling full end-to-end provisioning and control of L2- or L3-based services.

Advanced microwave features include modulations up to 1024QAM with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), co-channel operation with XPIC and dual-ODU support. CTR 8300 offers advanced networking options and flexibility to address evolving services needs, by combining the latest in Carrier Ethernet switching, Ethernet Pseudowires, Ethernet OAM and packet-based synchronization, along with software programmable capacity scalability.


CTR 8300 is smaller scale version of the CTR 8540—the most integrated microwave routing device on the market. For operators, fewer boxes to buy, configure and maintain means less latency and power consumption, better reliability and fewer interoperability issues.
